Lab Assignment SheetExploring Impulse-Momentum of Car Crashes (Week 11)Model or Topic Explored:In this lab, we will crash the IOLab unit into a solid objectlike a wall or sturdy book. We will introduce the concept of momentum and look at howit changes during a crash. We will make use of the Force and Wheel sensors to collectdata to see how force, time, and momentum are related. Name:Tori SalorenzoDate:2/27/17Observables:The cart bounces back, there is a change in the cart’s velocity, the cartimparts force on the book, and the book imparts force on the cartMeasureables:Velocity (m/s) of the cart, the mass (kg) of the cart, force (N) using theforce sensor, and the time (s) of impactConstants:the mass (kg) of the cartProblem Statement:How are momentum, force, and time related?Prediction:Momentum has a linear relationship with both force and time. This isbecause, ∆p = Fnet∆t.Experiment:Procedure,Tools,DiagramofApparatus:I chose these three books to withstand a collision with the IOLab cart. In each trial, a
